0.1

Kumar to de Kock, 2 runs, length ball, pitches outside leg, flicked away to the right of deep fine leg for a couple

0.2

Kumar to de Kock, 1 wide, no swing, and it starts wide outside leg again. A slightly nervous start or lack of swing?

0.2

Kumar to de Kock, 2 leg byes, this one swings the other way, down the leg side, de Kock misses, but gets two leg-byes

0.3

Kumar to de Kock, FOUR, lucky four runs. This is short, angling away, he has the room to go after it, but not enough. Gets the bottom edge, past the diving Dhoni. Slightly nervous from both the batsman and the bowler

0.4

Kumar to de Kock, OUT, oh he has given this. is it nervous from the umpire too or a great decision? De Kock is not happy with the call. He goes for a big drive to a length ball outside off, the fielders go up immediately for the inside edge, Ian Gould raises his finger after thinking about it. De Kock is not thrilled about the decision. Replays show there is a sound as it passes the bat, so the umpire has got it right

Q de Kock c †Dhoni b Kumar 6 (3m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 150.00

0.5

18.1

Kumar to Duminy, no run, low full toss, pretty straight, hit back at him. Valuable dot

18.2

Kumar to Duminy, no run, tries the cute ramp over fine leg to a length ball, but is beaten. Two dots, and pressure will be on Duminy now

18.3

Kumar to Duminy, SIX, that's a monster hit from Duminy. Stands strong, in the crease, gets under a length ball, and swings it clear over square leg. Don't bowl length at the death. Someone in the crowd seems to be hit

18.4

Kumar to Duminy, 1 run, slower ball, Duminy adjusts late, opens the face, gets a single to short third

18.5

Kumar to Miller, FOUR, what a shot. Top shot this. Low full toss, nearly a yorker, he can't get under it, but he drives this hard and beats the diving extra cover by inches

18.6

Kumar to Miller, 1 run, well bowled to finish the over. A perfect yorker. He has dug this out to leg, and scampers through for one. Was out if Bhuvneshwar had hit the non-striker's end

South Africa 158/4   B Kumar 4-0-33-1
